1 College Junior

Facilities at Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising - Los Angeles: Most of my teachers spend time gossiping about one another or talk about their own daily life happenings. The teachers here are taught to "baby" or behave their students, not intellectually challenge them. The more time I spend in a classroom, the more and quicker my brain cells evaporate.

The school offers Saturday classes for people with busy schedules. The school is very considerate because many students have part-time jobs on campus or outside of school. When it comes to transferring credits, I was able to transfer my AP scores easily.

Tuition & Financial Aid at Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising - Orange County: FIDM is a private for-profit school, therefore it offers less scholarships compare to the state schools. The tuition is significantly more, and I did receive less money from the state due to the fact that I am attending a private school. However I am satisfied with the education I have been receiving.

Career Services at Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising - Orange County: I'm currently in my 3rd quarter here at FIDM. The school's career center has a rule where you can only receive internship opportunities if you are in your second to last quarter. Because of that, I am unable to give a just rating.
